I’ve been wondering myself why we haven’t been hearing about Ebola lately, Why the Ebola cover up, or is it a cover up, unfortunately we may not know the whole truth and till its to late so its best to prepare for it even if it never comes. Hers the article that gives us some more information, true or not we need to be ready.
“Government Effort To Control The Message”
According to Fox News Channel’s investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson, who recently reached out to the Centers for Disease Control, the agency is still very much involved in monitoring individuals for the deadly African-borne virus. The problem, says Attkisson, is that the CDC is covering up the numbers, presumably to minimize panic across the United States.
Attkinson says that following the appointment of Ebola Czar Ron Klain media involvement became almost non-existent because the government stopped releasing statistics and granting interviews in an effort to control the news.
The infectious disease experts I consulted were and remain very concerned about this because if it gets out of control in this country because we will not be able to deal with it.
A lot of the media coverage has gone from overtime to almost nothing since they appointed the Ebola Czar, and I don’t think that’s any accident – I think it’s a strategy.
There’s a good argument to be made that things were made safer… the reason we don’t have a worst case scenario today as far as we know is because there was media coverage… a public outcry… that totally changed the way the government was handling the Ebola crisis…
Once the Ebola Czar came in they quit putting out the head of the CDC… no more interviews. Someone decided, I think, when we give information they cover it. When we don’t give information it will fall off the stage and it largely did.
I called CDC not long ago and said how many active cases are being monitored in the United States of Ebola and they said 1,400.
I said, ‘where is that on your web site?’ They said ‘We’re not putting it on the web.’
I think there is an effort to control the message and to tamp it down. This is public information and we have the right to know and I think the media should not hype it, but cover it.
